Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

(Solved) Mixing/Transferring Blueprint to C++

Hello everyone,

I have an odd question to ask which involves about Blueprint and C++, but is it the best way to work on your game within Blueprint, then when you have the base features included, apply C++ over it?

It's a confusing question and hard to explain. I am currently creating a game that includes Blueprint and a little of C++ code, however, I know that using everything in Blueprint would cause some performance issues with the game itself. This is the reason why I want to add some C++ code after finishing the Blueprint side.

I am still a beginner level with C++ so please coop with me. Like, I am trying to understand it and mix Blueprint with C++.

All I want is some best suggestions for using Blueprint and C++ such as which is to create first, how to learn to mix them and so on. I just do not want to end up with my video game having some short freezes or low-performance issues for only using Blueprints, when it comes to the final product since I really would love to make it good as possible for the Player's experience.

Thank you for reading, and hope to see a reply from you.

Kyle Carpio.

You have the option of nativizing your blueprints which will remove the performance penalty.

However, I prefer C++ for different reasons. The main one being that I am very familiar with it and it's actually easier for me than blueprints. The second one being the fact that I don't like "logic spaghetti" on my screen. Blueprint is an amazing feature but it's really not designed for complex algorithms, in my opinion. A 300 line C++ source code file is generally a lot more readable than a blueprint that accomplishes the same goal, at least for me.

Nativizing? What do you mean by that term?

I can understand about that. I am just more of a Visual Designer in which Blueprint was mainly designed for. I can tell that most coders have the same reason as you, but as I mention before, I do not think Blueprint was designed for programmers, just more of visual scripters.

To be honest, I have seen a couple of designers manage to go complexity with Blueprint, but it's your opinion, however, I am just pointing out what is shown in life.

I am trying to learn to programme, just the little areas of it, but the problem is that I can understand the logic and edit some of the code, just not hard code it from the topic of my head. I am still practising and hoping to achieve those skills to use.
